The Raid 2 – [FIRST LOOK.]

If you didn’t catch last year’s action epic The Raid: Redemption you missed out on a action classic that channeled the action greats (i.e. Die Hard, & any Keanu Reeves film made in the 90s.) The Raid focused a SWAT team who becomes trapped in a tenement run by a ruthless mobster and his army of killers and thugs. The sequel picks up right where the first film ends, The Raid 2 follows Rama (Uwais) as he goes undercover and infiltrates the ranks of a ruthless Jakarta crime syndicate in order to protect his family and uncover the corruption in his own police force.  THE RAID 2 (Indonesian title, THE RAID 2: BERANDAL.)  The film reunites writer/director Gareth Huw Evans with actor Iko Uwais, who will be reprising his starring role. The film has a crazy shooting schedule of 100 days, and will be releasing in 2014, can’t wait to see how they stepped their game up in terms of action in the second edition.
